Wow, people really hate windows phone... I love it personally, but each to their own! Why so negative about this phone now? It looks pretty sweet except for the build maybe... Stop with all the hatin'!!

WHAT IS THE ELOP EFFECT
The Elop Effect is similar to the Osborne Effect and the Ratner Effect. Both of them were COMMUNICATION errors. Not errors of management decisions. Errors of communication. Osborne Effect bankrupted the Osborne Computer Company in Britain, and the Ratner Effect almost did the same for Ratners Jewelry Store also in the UK, but they survived only by firing their CEO and changing the name of the company. Imagine how severe your troubles have to be, if you are a retailer and have to change your company name and branding. If Walmart was so poisonous as a brand, or Tesco or Ikea, that they can only survive by changing totally their corporate identity and trying to convince consumers that they are now somebody else. Ouch indeed. Stephen Elop caused the modern version of the Osborne Effect, when he announced that Nokia would switch from Symbian to WP, while at that time, he had no Microsoft WP based Nokia smartphones to sell, or even to show.
That is exactly what Osborne did with his computers. Osborne saw its sales collapse overnight. So did Nokia too. We have now seen Nokia lose more than half of its market in a matter of months - a world record destruction of a global customer base. Elop actually even made matters worse than what Osborne had done. Elop not only announced his current smartphones are instantly obsolete on that fateful February 11 day, he then told the world, that Nokia under his leadership would boldly release dozens more new smartphones on that suddenly-undesirable Symbian OS for more than a year to come. He in fact committed to 150 million more Symbian phones - which would take us to about the end of 2012 before Nokia would stop peddling new Symbian phones at us. And this, when in February he announced to the world that Nokia's own Symbian was to be terminated. What a fool! So Elop looked at the most damaging management communication about new products ever, and decided he can do better. He actually out-Osborned Osborne.
Yes. That alone would qualify us for creating a new word in his honor to commemorate this disgrace. But he was not done. Elop wanted to guarantee he will end up in the Guiness Book of Records for the most incompetent management ever, he compounded his error by replicating the Ratner Effect, except that too, he did with his Microsoftian style.
So just before his big Microsoft announcement, Elop decided to issue an internal memo to all staff, about his thoughts. This is the infamous Burning Platforms memo, the costliest management memo ever written. A memo so toxic it not only wiped out Billions in sales and profits at the smartphone unit - it even caused severe loss at the supposedly unrelated featurephones unit of Nokia (ie dumbphones). The Burning Platforms memo was so devastating it gives new meaning to the term 'poison pen'.

according to this "GSMArena: You advertise 140 db audio recording. What's special about the technology behind that?
D. Dinning: First of all, we have new microphones, which we position at the ends of the device to give as much stereo-spatial awareness as possible, as well as getting them as far away from the camera as possible" 808 has stereo speakers?
amzing low light pics!
how about Nokia 808 pureview VS Samsung galaxy Note.. Note eats away this small chicken in less thn a second
This is one big step to change the game! If Nokia can add more techs on a mobile device, then thats it!
Congrats Nokia! ;)

Sure, this is very powerful looking at the demos, but a lot of things don't feel right. Putting a bigger battery capacity, more choices internal memory, more attractive form, WiFi direct and exFAT/NTFS support would really launch this device to the top, even with other companies boasting higher numbers in their spec sheets.
I am also one who will not buy a Windows Phone considering its limitations. iOS pissed me off because of its limitations, and WP has the same (if not worse) limitations as iOS.
The only OS that I will truly accept is Symbian. Android is my ONLY alternative. Meego is very nice, but the lack of support for it turned me off.
get life . your just complaining cuz you cant get a descent phone . i bet your phone doesnt have a good camera thats why u have a cannon cammera and i bet thats a digicam
cystic, 10 Apr 2012 Nokia should have improved this fone battery to 3000 Amh+, coz, stronger battery is... moreI think that they made this mistake in purpose, to make people buy up coming lumia pureview phones instead of this symbian. Unfortunately they dont realize that there are lots of people like me who hates microsoft and never buys any windows phone no matter how much they to impove them. I only accept phones that have linux based OS:s like symbian,meego,android.
